We are excited to announce that the Seattle Rock Orchestra is continuing their long tradition, and returning to the Moore Theatre stage with their annual Mother’s Day weekend Beatles shows.
This year Seattle Rock Orchestra tackles the Beatles’ much beloved final studio recordings, Abbey Road and Let It Be. The program features songs such as “Across The Universe,” “Let It Be,” “Get Back,” “Come Together,” “Something,” “Oh! Darling,” and concludes with Abbey Road‘s famous 16-minute medley.
Sunday’s performance will include a special opening set by Seattle Rock Orchestra Social Club, Seattle Rock Orchestra’s sister-orchestra comprised of adult amateur musicians.
Founded in 2008 by bassist and composer Scott Teske, this unique Seattle orchestra utilizes strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and a rotating cast of exciting guest vocalists to deliver tribute shows unlike any other.
Each show juxtaposes a dynamic plethora of possibilities: the infectious energy of a dance party with a classy night out at the symphony, searing rock solos with intimate orchestral moments, and fan favorite sing-alongs with lesser known “deep cuts,” all combining to create a fun yet profoundly moving night out that honors the featured artist’s lasting legacy.
Throughout the years, the Seattle Rock Orchestra has racked up an impressive resume that includes collaborations with well-loved bands including Elvis Costello, Macklemore, Allen Stone, Jason Webley, Sir Mix-a-Lot, The Posies, R.E.M., Harvey Danger, Pearl Jam and much more!
Look for them on stages across Washington State including Seattle’s Paramount, Moore and Neptune Theatres, Sasquatch Music Festival, Summer Meltdown Festival and Timber Outdoor Music Festival.
This summer, the Seattle Rock Orchestra is hosting their annual Summer Intensive program in Seattle and Kirkland. This week-long day camp offers middle and high school band, orchestra, and choir students the full Seattle Rock Orchestra experience.
